    Exclamation Cannot play DVD game after soft mode (4.2U) Come in if you are an expert!

    I follow the thread below, and softmode my wii
    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...y-4-2-wii.html
    I can play wii ware game, installed by wad manageer.
    how ever, I download two dvd game - Indian Johns and sports resort
    burn them into Verbatim DVD-R
    None of them work. when I tried to load the game through NeoGamma R8 beta7, IOS249 (Rev 14), It seems the application trying to read the disc hard, last for about 30 seconds? then it says
    DVD read error (1053), and some times it says 'time out'
    Does the wii softmode successfully? Is it a problem of disc it's self, or the iso file?

    Plus, In the thread above, step 3 - Delete The Stubbed IOS
    It ask to remove IOS222, IOS223, IOS249 and IOS250.

    My wii have a higher one, which is IOS 253(maybe 251), should I delete that one as well or keep it? I dare not to touch it, so I leave it there.
    Is it the reason that I cannot load DVD game?

    I tried to copy these two ISO files into SD card and use some other loader, but unfortunatly these two files are bigger than 4G and cannot be copied to a FAT32 file system.

    Any clues will be great appreciate!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    When you first got the Wii, was 4.2 already installed or did you update it? Because Wiis with 4.2 installed are likely to have the newer drives i believe it's GC2-D3 or something like that, with that you are not able to play DVD Backups, but you ARE able to use USb Loader, which is way better.

    Yes what he is trying to say is that if your wii is fairly new, purchased around september of 09 or later, your wii may have the a new board which is D3-2. Those boards are unable to play DVD-rs. If your wondering as to how it can play original disc though, that is because they use Wii Optical Discs. The way around this is the buy different board and replace that one, or you can simply buy an exteral HDD and load your wii games through there.
    Come to the Irc room to get help or just have fun

    Motivation alone is not enough. If you have an idiot and you motivate him, now you have a motivated idiot.

    Your wii has the d3-2 board. It cannot play copied dvd games. The board is just the circuit board that goes onto the dvd drive in your wii. Nintendo made a new one that prevent playing dvd-r copies.

    To play backups, you will have to do it with usb or sd loading, but like you said, simply copying the iso files to your sd card wont work. Im actually having a hard time finding a good guide for that stuff, so ill post back later when i have,
